Official Storyline Synopsis for Code: Realize ~ Guardian of Rebirth~
Confined to an abandoned mansion, lonely Cardia lives day to day isolated from the outside world. A virulent toxin courses through her veins, ravaging life and wringing breath from all that contacts her skin. Reviled and feared by the townspeople, she lives a life of loneliness. Her memory is a smashed mirror of fragments and slivers that piece together only a faint and fractured picture of her past. Fortune seemingly smiles upon young Cardia when she is swept away from her desolate confines by a chivalrous thief by the name of Arsène Lupin. She soon finds herself embroiled in an epic quest to unlock the mysteries of her past.
